alternatives include the treasure tax collector, includes the assessor recorder's office, you recently approved a short term lease for a project for their use that could have some expansion down stream, they would need space potentially for that or potentially at city hall. we mentioned the law library as an unresolved space matter, i don't want to get into the logistics of that today but note that as a potential, but we think the most viable potential use is related to the fact that the building is half a block away from the fspuc headquarters, we have not been able to move everything into that fspuc and we'll be executing a hold-over for upwards of 13 thousand square feet to meet some of the waste water and consultant space needs that puc has, so clearly there is a demand for public space, the pricing of this agreement subject to this ratification item is similar to the cost of city owned buildings, so it is far below the market rate which currently according to the most recent report we have from cbre is running at about 30 dollars and 90 cents per square foot, this is at a fixed ra
